As we continue driving improvements to the Office Pro Plus deployment experience in Intune, we were recently alerted to a conflicting policy scenario. We’re working to adjust the experience, but know that it may take a few sprints to reach resolution.

 

If a user is targeted with more than one Office Pro Plus policy, only one of those will get delivered to an end users' device. Here is one such scenario you may have seen. A group of users are targeted Office Pro Plus as a required install on the device. Now, you want to make Visio and/or Project available to a subset of those users as an optional install. Install can only happen to one of those suites; in this case the required install only. IT Admins and end users may see error code 0x87D1041E in their respective portals.

 

Short term, you can bundle Office Pro Plus and Visio/Project as required in one policy, which will then ensure that Visio and Project are available for your end users. Alternatively you can create a policy to make Office Pro Plus with Visio/Project as available. However, keep in mind that all Office apps will need to be closed for your end user to go download Visio or Project from the Company Portal.

 

We’ll update this post and What’s New when there’s an updated experience released.

What took you guys so long? This is such an inconvenience for large organisations where Office is distributed to large set of users as a Core application Vs Project & Visio to small set of users. If Office Pro Plus is already installed on the device, are you guys advising to uninstall Office ProPlus and reinstall Office ProPlus + Visio?

We were told by Microsoft legal/compliance that we could not deploy O365 w/ Visio and Project to all of our users. Even though it would be in limited functionality mode, they said it would be against EULA to have them installed on a non licensed users PC. Has this POV changed?

I’ve found when we deploy Office Pro Plus to our M365B users, the licensing eventually syncs up and they would have Office 365 Business.  However, when we add MS Project to the install package, the Office 365 Business licensing changes back to ProPlus thus causing an invalid licensing situation since the users have M365 Business which doesn’t come with ProPlus.

 

Thw workaround has been to uninstall all instances manually including running some cscript to remove invalid keys.  Reboot.  Install o365 from the portal(manually) and then do the same manual step for MS Project..  

 

‘We’ve since disabled the intune deployment for Office which is a shame because it used to work great!

… and now we have a new issue...TEAMS...missing from the Office Pro Plus deployment. For Office Pro Plus, the update channel was set to "semi-annual" and looks like this is causing TEAMS failure to install along with Office. 

 

Give me few more days...and I'm pretty sure I will come back with few more issues. Thank you Microsoft Team/s.

What you do is create an Office + Visio group that includes Office and Vision and then create an Exclude with that group on your Normal just Office package. This has always been working as designed and is very annoying. It should be additive.
